The New Friendly is a very good option when traveling thru’ Downeast Maine. Their food is good, especially the pot roast & seafood selections. Good down-home cooking. The desserts are indeed home made & taste like it. A very good option on route 1.

I absolutely love this restaurant and it is one of the few in the area that is open year round. If you are not a seafood eater don't despair because they have a robust diner menu that will appeal to the most discriminating diner.
